Titanfall Developer Unsure About Titanfall 3

CEO of Respawn Entertainment, Vince Zampella has stated the studio ‘doesn’t know’ if there will be a Titanfall 3.

This comes after Titanfall 2‘s unimpressive sales at launch where it finished fourth at the retail charts in the U.K in its first week.

Titanfall 2 was released in late October in between the release of EA’s own Battlefield 1 and Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare which financial analysts said would lead to fewer sales than EA’s projection of 9 to 10 million units in the game’s first year.

In reality, the game only managed a quarter of the original’s sales at launch despite launching on PS4 as well as other platforms this time around.

Unlike its predecessor, Titanfall 2 features a single player campaign.

In an interview with Glixel, CEO of Respawn and former co-founder of Infinity Ward Vince Zampella said the following when asked about another Titanfall entry:

“We don’t know yet. The game is, critically, a huge success. We’re really happy with all the reviews and the positive sentiment.

“Sales, it’s too early to tell. We’d definitely like to tell more of the story and the universe. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll explore more of it. EA might have announced more.”

At this stage a publicist for EA stated:

“What we’ve said is we’re committed to the franchise.”

To which Zampella responded:

“So, whatever the f*** that means.”

As ex-founder of Infinity Ward, Zampella had a significant hand in the creation of the Call of Duty franchise which is now direct competition for Zampella’s Respawn Entertainment.

When asked about Titanfall 2 launching so close to the remastered Modern Warfare, Zampella said:

“It definitely feels a little odd. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is from my old studio, that I built. And they’re repackaging my old game that I built, on a brand that I built. So it’s kind of like you’re throwing it all against me. OK, I can live with it.”

In 2010, Zampella and co-founder of Infinity Ward Jason West were fired by Activision for ‘breaches of contract and insubordination’.

Respawn Entertainment is currently working on an unannounced Star Wars project which it is safe to assume is a shooter of some kind given Zampella and Respawn’s pedigree.
